Advice from a seasoned athlete.

As we’re approaching summer and warmer weather, there’s no better time to lace up your shoes and get your fitness groove on than now. While 2020 put a pause on people’s lives and may have made it more difficult to stay active during the pandemic, things are starting to open back up.

As an athlete for years, I’ve tried a number of different workouts and had numerous fitness routines. I’ve learned so much about health and fitness from these past ten years of being an athlete, and have five tips to help you crush your workouts.

For a lot of…


And they’re all under $5.

Prior to college I didn’t realize how fortunate I was to have a fridge full of groceries that was always stocked with fresh produce and all of my favorite foods. My parents did the grocery shopping, and I took for granted how easy and accessible it was for me to grab a snack anytime I wanted from the fridge.

Once I got to college, I started doing more grocery shopping and budgeting for myself. …


Shop smart and save money.

When I was growing up, I was use to having a fully stocked fridge with all of my favorite foods. My mom would buy my favorite snacks to pack for school lunch, and I would have an assortment of foods to choose from after coming home from cross-country practice.

When you’re young you don’t worry about paying bills, and you probably don’t know much about expenses at all. In addition to your rent and groceries, you have to pay your phone bill, car insurance, gas, health insurance, and so on. …


Here’s what you’ve been missing out on.

It costs a lot to live, and one of the expenses that everyone has to pay is for groceries. And that doesn’t include restaurant or coffee outings.

I use to get coffee quite often when I was in college, but ever since graduating, I’ve been much more frugal with my money and have been spending less money on food.

Food is something that adds up quickly, especially if you’re not keeping a close eye on the prices and items that you’re buying.

With that being said, there are easy ways that you can save some serious cash on food alone…


Affordable items you can benefit from.

Every morning I wake up, roll out of bed, and walk downstairs to start my day. I make my cup of coffee, pack up my bag, and head off to wherever I need to go.

Most people’s mornings are quite similar. They wake up, pour a cup of coffee or tea, and pack all of the things they need for work or school. And it makes it much easier if you have a few key necessities in your kitchen that will help your mornings run a bit smoother.

I never use to be super organized and waited until the morning…


All under $5.

In the past, I would do a lot of work in my bed or on my couch. I was never someone to actually sit at a desk and do my work. Mostly because I was always crunched on time and I tried to get work done wherever was most convenient for me.

However, I’ve recently been more adamant about creating a space that’s a designated office space for me to get some work done. This has resulted in me being more productive and efficient with my time.

And there have been a few desk essentials that have helped immensely. Not…


Boost your productivity with these small fixes.

For the past year, I’ve maintained a morning routine that allows me to stay productive and be efficient in a timely manner. Ever since graduating from college, I’ve had to create my own schedule and routine to ensure that I get my work done.

When I was a college student, I was a student athlete. I had a pretty strict schedule with a small window of free time, which made it easy for me to get things done.

Motivation is the key to having a productive day, and it isn’t always the easiest, especially if you’re self-employed or work from…


Inexpensive items that will help with gym gains.

As the summer is approaching, people are starting to get back into the grind of working out and looking to make some fitness gains.

While the pandemic made it difficult for people to stay in shape, as most of the gyms were closed and it was a very stressful time, people are looking to get back in shape and to start working out again.

The summer is the absolute perfect time to start working out and to set goals you want to reach by the end of the summer because the weather is nice, and people tend to have more…


Even if you don’t want to be an influencer.

When I was growing up, I didn’t use social media at all. I’ve never had a Facebook account, and it wasn’t until I was in high school when I created my very first Instagram account.

Even after making my profile on Instagram, I hardly ever posted on it. I would seldom post a picture of my friends and I, and I had around 100 followers at the time, all of which where people I knew that went to my school.

However, over these past few years, I’ve become more interested in social media and growing my platform on various sites…


A breakdown of how much it would cost to live in them.

Deciding on where to live isn’t as easy as choosing a place that you could see yourself living. In fact, many people choose not to go somewhere they would love to live because of affordability, job opportunities, and so on.

And some people would rather live close to family instead of jetting off to the other side of the country. Traveling to new places and experiencing different cultures is both exhilarating and fun, however, it doesn’t come without cost.

It’s a no brainer that living is expensive. You have to pay for rent, groceries, gas, electric, wifi, etc., …
